Begin your tour with a short boat ride ending a landing dock just 10 minutes away. You'll take a short nature walk (approximately 15 minutes) with stops for your guide to tell you about the native flowers, plants and trees in sight. You'll learn about the rich US Virgin Island's history and a peek into island life on your way to an overlook of the bay where your guide will take photos. Soon you will arrive at the picturesque beach where you will have a break before your snorkel.
Next, you will set out on a snorkeling adventure with your guide who will provide a lesson, equipment and assistance. Your guide will take you out in the protected area of the bay where you will see multiple sea turtles in their natural habitat and admire the view of the turtles. Photos will be taken throughout your tour, including underwater which may include a photo of you and a turtle if you are lucky! You will snorkel for approximately 45 minutes.
Afterwards, you will come back to the beach to enjoy lunch at a beach-side restaurant with picnic tables shaded by canopies and umbrellas. Fare includes burgers, sandwiches, fish tacos, salads, etc. There will be time to relax on the beach where chaise lounge chairs and shade from umbrellas are available at no charge. After about 45-60 mins of beach time, you will join your guide for a return walk to the boat landing and a short ride back to the marina where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your cruise ship port or hotel.
This tour includes photos, lunch at a beach-side restaurant, snorkel gear, a cooler of cold bottled water and a snack.
Optional pick up and drop off at your hotel or cruise ship port: If you would like transportation from your cruise ship or hotel, this must be pre-arranged with the tour provider (before your cruise or travel begins). Your pick up time is before the start of the tour and is based on your location. Please note, the cost of round trip transportation is $14 per person and is due in cash on the day of your tour.
